Counter Fiend Combat is a series original martial arts style developed for one specific character in mind.
The fighting style is mainly focused on hard hitting brute force. The move set resembles that of its sole practitioners fighting style when armed with their signature weapon.
It has also been shown that its sole user can also perform magic based attacks from a trailer shown, slamming the ground causing it to erupt in magic explosions trailing along the ground toward its intended target.

- Counter Fiend Combat was created for Rachel so she could play similar to SPARTAN-458's fighting style, since SPARTAN-458 couldn't return in Dead or Alive 5.
- Interestingly, she has a throw (Quetzacoatl) in which she rams her butt into a crouching foe. This is unlike the nature of Counter Fiend Combat.
